    It's completely crazy and i like it except the phallic shape in mat black on the hood. There are more pictures of that car in the saudi spotting thread GCC around the world and in gold ferrari thread (in 612/599 section). The car was this summer in Europe. Shiny shiny shiny.

    Pav,

    I don't frequent the 599/612 thread... sorry for the repost...

    It is shiny... that's for sure...

    I'm assuming it's some sort of film covering...

    That is what happens when a camel kicks you in the head and the next day you order a new car while being under heavy medication.

    Jim,

    That remark is so xenophobic that it doesn't deserve a response, but here goes anyway...

    Other people of other cultures have different tastes in fashion and style... I see it every single day in the way Middle Easterners dress, the colors they paint their houses, the furniture they buy, and I could go on and on...

    I think what you wrote is out of line and shows a great deal of disrepect to the people who live in this region, and the people whose ancestors are from here.

    If it was an attempt at humor, it was a lame one, in my opinion.

    I guess it matches some dude's gold chains and over powering cologne. If you are going to play the part, play it all the way!

    another insensitive remark.

    Nope.

    7 days for this one.


    See you in a week.

    Most owners are young and their idea is to add something well "personal" if not "unique" to the vehicle. Money can't always buy taste, in this case as well. But i still find that car amazing. Reminds me of Yazeed's (the rally driver) chromed 599 (same kit). On this one if you drop the mat thing on the bonnet and if you get rid of the scoop on the roof (Hamann makes a lot of unbelievable mods that are quite useless all over) the car is pretty much awesome imo.

    The picture below was taken at sunrise on a highway of the south of France. Priceless.

    Americans are all fat. DONT BAN ME! PLEASE!

    ...I also hate the way this car looks. It follows the same philosophy of too many Escalades: If it shines it must make the car better.

    If you posted this in the Mid Atlantic Forum I'd have to consider a ban, but not in here. :D

    Thanks Mike. I find it amusing that there are people who still don't get it.

    You're most welcome... I know you would do, and say, the same for me if the situation were reversed.
